Just 8 Minutes Walk To The City Bound Train – An Impeccable 3-Bed, 3-Bath,
Caden Grimes Estates Is Delighted To Present –
Cluain Dara is Leixlip’s most professionally managed development, maintained impeccably and the houses are built to the highest standard.
Have a look at nr 6 here and come along to view the real thing!
Over the past 6 months or so we have noticed a weakening in house price growth especially second hand homes. The number of new house builds coming on stream has finally begun to kick in, giving home buyers more options and, as we all know, supply effects pricing.
Dublin property prices rose by just 1% in the second quarter this year and while they are still rising, it is still a healthy sign that the overheating is going out of the market.
Economist Marian Finnegan’s research (Irish Times, 28th June 2018) showed that new home sales went up a strong 41% in the first quarter of 2018 over the same period 2017.
The Letting market unfortunately has not seen increased supply as yet and rents are still exorbitantly high.

South Dublin County Council has issued the Planning Notice for a new sports complex in Griffeen Valley Park. It will include a 25m pool, a gym and fitness centre, changing facilities of course and a cafeteria, the space will total 3,300 sq M in all.
You can see details here or in the Library at Superquinn – which is open on Saturdays too – 09.30 to 4.30pm
SDCC say that the development will not affect either the structure or the views of King Johns Bridge in Grifeen Valley Park.
If all goes according to plan, the new complex could be with us by 2020. With a 2016 Census population of 32,134 and scheduled to grow with the 2017 SDCC Development plan, it will be a welcome addition for our young and our adult population.

Choosing an Estate Agent to sell your home is part skill and part intuition. You have to believe the agent is going to do his or her best to sell your home for the best price as quickly as is possible.
Trust is critical and so is communication.
1. The agent him/herself and the company they work for MUST be registered with the Property Services Regulatory Authority (PSRA). That’s a legal requirement. The PSRA also obliges the Agent and the Vendor to have a Letter of Engagement (contract) in place. www.psr.ie
2. Trust, as I say, is critical. If you believe in the agent, then it is likely that potential buyers will also. And it is remarkable how many agents don’t answer calls or don’t reply to emails and voice mails.
3. Local knowledge is good but remember an agent with a number of properties in your locality may have split loyalties.
4. What is the fee – you can expect to pay anything between 1 – 2% of the sale price, more than that is unnecessary. And get a clear picture of marketing charges – the sign board, brochures, advertising and photos. Online advertising has pretty much taken over from newspaper ads.
5. A good Estate Agent will gather details, not alone on the property itself, but also on the neighbourhood – transport, facilities such as schools, shops, sports grounds, new developments and so on – all of those things you will want to know when you are buying.
6. The Agent is obliged to tell a potential buyer about any issues (planning, structural, flooding etc) s/he knows of if asked.
7. Have your house as well presented as is possible for photos and for viewings. The old adage – “they can see past that” is not worth the risk. It lowers both the perception and therefore the bid value of your property.
